why the kids love the new apartment
Friday evening, kids have eaten dinner. They’re greasy and dirty and need baths. Mom looks at her watch, 6:00pm. She peers out the window and notices the sun is still shining but beginning its cool evening decent. That water may be cold but they won’t care… they’ll love it.
“everyone!” she announces, “grab your bathing suits! we’re going to the pool.”
shrieks, giddy jumps, rolls, pitter patter to find swim gear… out the door they go, marching in a perfect line down the sidewalk and around the neighboring building to the swimming pool. Oh and just when things couldn’t get better, the pool is fenced in, and there are no other people around.
Baths are done. Kids are happy, Mom is chill.
ahhh…. life is good.
